Supporting artists in the realization of their ideas and projects is one of the main tasks of the Starke Foundation. Primarily talented, yet not established artists are to be assisted on their path to success.
The „artist in residence“ program is the key to the purpose of the Starke Foundation. For a period of 3-12 months, the foundation will provide residential and working premises to selected artists. Besides this long term support for young artists, short-term apartments for established artists are available. In addition the Starke Foundation arranges numerous national and international contacts to museums, galleries and public institutions as well as to representatives in the fields of culture, science, economy, sports and politics. The meeting between young art and business is also an important part of the program. Furthermore, the „Artist in Residence“ program gives the artists the opportunity to present their projects created during their stay at the Lionspalace to a wide public in the mansion’s own gallery after their scholarship has ended. The projects of the Starke foundation are also accompanied scientifically by international curators.
